Analysis of finds from the archaeological excavation of a cist burial located on the foreshore at Lopness on Sanday in Orkney that reveals new evidence for Bronze Age burial practices, has just been published in our online journal ARO

We are delighted to announce that Bannockburn: Scotland's seminal battlefield rediscovered by GUARD Project Manager Warren Bailie and published in Current Archaeology earlier this year, has been nominated in the Research Project of the Year category in the 2016 Current Archaeology Awards!

Archaeological excavations in advance of an extension to Snabe Quarry revealed pits and structures from the late Mesolithic (eighth millennium BC) until the early Neolithic (fourth millennium BC) when a concentration of activity coincided with the importation of pitchstone from the Isle of Arran and a polished stone axe fragent from Cumbria.
